But the move to release Sherman, coupled with a recent trade of defensive end Michael Bennett, is a sign Seattle is tearing down its defence and is ready to build a new team with a new identity. If he can return to form he is still one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. The days of an Achilles tear being an immediate career-ender are long past, but for a cornerback who never had outstanding deep speed-and is less than three weeks from his 30th birthday-it's hard to think he'll be back to top form before the season starts.
Sherman turns 30 on March 30.
One of the most accomplished cornerbacks of his generation, Sherman made four Pro Bowls and was named a first-team All-Pro three times during his seven seasons with the Seahawks, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Stanford in 2011.
"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said Friday on KIRO radio in Seattle. The team has a talented corner in Darius Slay. He has since undergone surgery on his other Achilles.
The releases of Sherman and Lane leave Seattle's cornerback spot with some uncertainty heading into free agency.
The Seahawks could also re-sign DeShawn Shead, who like Maxwell is also an unrestricted free agent. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
